Where words are sharper than swords

23.09.2009
Jönköping University's international conference on Middle East coverage scheduled for October 2-3, 2009

The role political and economic powers play in shaping media discourses from viewpoints of religion, ideology and control in the Middle East will be the topic of the Hamrin Conference on International Coverage of the Middle East, Oct 2-3 at Jönköping University, Sweden.

An extraordinary group of media executives, newspaper editors, media scholars will gather to discuss how conflicts are depicted, how the region's peoples see themselves and how the rest of the world sees them. Among the speakers will be

Jon Williams, World Editor for Newsgathering at the BBC
Tony Burman, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English
Prof. Greg Philo from the Glasgow Media Group at University of Glasgow
Prof. John Maxwell Hamilton, Louisiana State University
The conference will also feature a discussion of how the region is portrayed in the Swedish media by representatives of SVT, Dagens Nyheter, the Church of Sweden, the Jewish Council of Sweden, and the Muslim Council of Sweden. Confirmed speakers include
Lars Boström from Dagens Nyheter
Lisa Abramowicz from the Jewish Council
Abdirizak Webiri from the Muslim Council
The conference is open to the press, media practitioners, and members of the public.
Participation in the conference is free of charge but if you would like to attend the meals you will need to register. To receive a registration form please contact Barbara Eklöf:

Im Focus: First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
